“You’re show is coming back this week!”said my friend Tomomi.
“What channel?”she asked.
“Syfy in the U.S., but Space Channel here in Canada.”
I noticed one of the saleswomen standing off to the side, clearly privy to the conversation, beyond excited and poised as though ready to pounce.
“This Friday at 10 p.m.,”I said.
Unable to hold back any longer, the saleswoman stepped up: “What show are you talking about?”
“Dark Matter,”I told her.
She smiled, hugely. “I LOVE that show! Are you in it?”
“No, I’m the show’s creator.”
She was beyond thrilled. “I’m so happy it’s back. Friday night?”
“It is SOOOO good.”
“What was your favorite episode?”
A pause to consider and then: “The one told from Julie’s point of view.”
“No, I’m sure it was Dark Matter.”
I was pretty sure it wasn’t but who was I to argue? Besides the show’s creator. She stepped behind the cash and did a quick online search. “Yeah, this is it Dark Matter…No, wait. This isn’t it.” And then, helpfully: “This looks good too.”
She assured me she would be binge-watching season 1 in preparation for the Friday premiere.
Just in case though, I’m thinking of dropping by, say, Wednesday-ish to see how that binge-watch is coming along.
Today’s Dark Matter season 2 sneak peek screen shot of the day. Seriously, WTF?
An early blog entry today as I am off to watch the season finale of Game of Thrones. I predict a little subterfuge on the part of Queen Margaery that should see the High Sparrow and his disciples dealt a mortal blow…with an innocent and unwary Tommen as collateral damage.
Tomorrow – back in the writers’ room spinning season 3!
